S. Jaishankar: Indian Foreign Minister S Jaishankar is on a tour of America these days. He has come there to participate in the General Assembly of the United Nations. During a discussion at the ‘Council on Foreign Relations’ in New York on Tuesday (September 26), External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar highlighted India-China relations that have gone through cycles of conflict and cooperation in nearly 75 years. He said that relations between the two countries have never been easy. There have always been some problems with this.
‘There has been no death on the border since 1975’
“I was ambassador in 2009, right after the global financial crisis, until 2013,” he said. I saw the change of regime in China and then I came to America. It has never been an easy relationship.” He said that despite the history of wars and military incidents, there have been no military or battle deaths on the border since 1975. He said that there was a war between India and China in 1962, after which many military incidents took place. But after 1975, there has never been any military or war fatal incident on the border.
‘There has always been ambiguity in China’s decisions’
Jaishankar further said that there has always been ambiguity in China’s decisions, as China never really explains the reasons behind its actions. He said that one of the joys of dealing with the Chinese is that they never tell you why they do what they do, so you often end up trying to figure out why.
‘India-China relations became tense due to provocations’
The External Affairs Minister further said that the strained relations between India and China have been aggravated by recent Chinese provocations, including the release of the 2023 edition of its “standard map”, laying claim to Arunachal Pradesh, Aksai Chin region and denial of visas to Indian athletes at the Hangzhou Asian Games. Includes refusal to give. He said that while on one hand India has always tried to mend relations, on the other hand they have always broken agreements.
